Default My 10' x 20' greenhouse build.

I'm building a 10' x 20' greenhouse on the south end of my garage. I thought I would document the progress here. The goal is to grow enough for the wife and I and storing the rest. Th goal is to make it as easy as possible with minimum bending, weeding, and manual labor as I have a bad back, and the wife has RA.

Here is the site prep.

I buried 300' of 1/2" irrigation tubing 4' to 5' underground to be used as a cooler for the reservoir. Never done hydroponics before.

The greenhouse will have 6' side wall and basically be a lean-to type building. I will use double walled polycarbonate for the panels, and wood frame construction. More to come.
Stand back I'm growing a tomato...
